Winner of the 2014 Silver Nautilus Award This enhanced edition includes nine moving video portraits of people who found passion, purpose, and profound fulfillment in places that surprised even them. Anybody can have a Life Reimagined moment! Are you asking, “What's next?” You've finished one chapter of your life story and you have yet to write the next one. Many of us face these transitions at midlife, but they can happen at any point. It's a time full of enormous potential, and it defines a whole new phase of life. It's called Life Reimagined. Here is your map to guide you in this new life phase. You can use the powerful practices and insights—enhanced with online tools and exercises at AARP's LifeReimagined.org—to help you uncover your own special gifts, connect with people who can support you, and explore new directions. You'll be inspired by meeting ordinary people who have reimagined their lives in extraordinary ways. You'll also read the stories of pioneers of the Life Reimagined movement such as Jane Pauley, James Brown, and Emilio Estefan. One of the profound truths that underlies this book is the liberating notion that each of us is “an experiment of one,” free to find our own path in this new phase of our lives. No old rules, no outdated societal norms, no boundaries of convention or expectation. Each of the videos in the enhanced edition exemplifies the Life Reimagined manifesto of choice, curiosity, and courage. These are stories of ordinary people who hit a roadblock, looked around, saw something that spoke deeply to them, and boldly set off in a brand new direction. From a grandmother running her 73rd marathon, to a tattooed truck driver who teaches Zumba on the side, to a reluctant computer geek who had a “pizza epiphany,” they show that each of us has the freedom to choose our own way, in our own way, throughout all the years of our lives.

BOOK EXCERPT:

**Purchase includes a free online course on faith*** What do you do when the faith you’ve always known no longer makes sense? That’s the haunting, confusing, unexpected question confronting twentysomething Peter Daniel Young after a friend doubts whether Christianity makes sense of life and has anything to offer. More troublesome yet: the right Christian answers Peter was trained to give since childhood are for questions no one is even asking—including his friend, and even himself. Which leaves him questioning what he’s always believed — leading to a crisis of faith the likes of which he has never before experienced. While not abandoning his childhood faith, Peter launches into a journey of exploration and discovery, reimagining faith for his world and questioning what the essence of the Christian message is in the first place. Along the way, he is confronted by rising doubts, encouraged by friends new and old, questioned by those close to him, and challenged to own his faith for himself. What he discovers is all at once terrifying and thrilling — for this story is the drama of his faith’s death and rebirth. Written in the self-discovery style of John Green’s coming of age stories, with shades of such classics as C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity and John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, J. A. Bouma’s tale is the first story in a fresh, insightful spiritual coming of age series for a new generation wondering if the Christianity they’ve always known still matters in these dynamic times — and whether there might be something more to help make sense of life. Drawing from his own spiritual journey as a young adult, Bouma writes a stirring fable of resonance and truth for those wrestling with deep questions of faith, life, and everything in between. Whether you are facing your own crisis of faith and wondering whether Christianity still matters, or you know someone who is struggling themselves, discover along with Peter what the Christian message means for him, his family and friends, his life in the Church — and for you.

Smith argues that the attempt to redefine and restore French nobility brought forth competing visions of patriotism with correlating models of the social and political order. Although the terms of public debate have changed, the same basic challenge continues to animate contemporary politics.

This is the first book to explore the canonical narratives, stories, examples, and ideas that legal decisionmakers invoke to explain family law and its governing principles. Jill Elaine Hasday shows how this canon misdescribes the reality of family law, misdirects attention away from actual problems family law confronts, and misshapes policies.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Free Trade Reimagined begins with a sustained criticism of the heart of the emerging world economy, the theory and practice of free trade. Roberto Mangabeira Unger does not, however, defend protectionism against free trade. Instead, he attacks and revises the terms on which the traditional debate between free traders and protectionists has been joined. Unger's intervention in this major contemporary debate serves as a point of departure for a proposal to rethink the basic ideas with which we explain economic activity. He suggests, by example as well as by theory, a way of understanding contemporary economies that is both more realistic and more revealing of hidden possibilities for transformation than are the established forms of economics. One message of the book is that we need not choose between accepting and rejecting globalization; we can have a different globalization. Traditional free trade doctrine rests on shaky empirical and theoretical ground. Unger takes a new approach to show when international trade is likely to be useful or harmful to the socially inclusive economic growth that every nation wants. Another message is that the movement of people and ideas is more important than the movement of things and money, and that freedom to change the institutions defining a market economy is just as important as freedom to exchange goods on the basis of those institutions. Free Trade Reimagined ranges broadly within and outside economics. Presenting technical issues in plain language, it appeals to the general reader. It puts a disciplined imagination in the service of rebellion against the dictatorship of no alternatives that characterizes life and thought today.
